Admiral McDonald’s owner/operator Alia Abboud got to show off her newly remodeled restaurant to special visitors today. With her above is King County Council chair – and Admiral resident – Joe McDermott, there in honor of the official grand re-opening celebrating completion of the project we first told you about back in April. First the exterior work was done, including the drive-thru, and then the interior, so the restaurant could stay open throughout the project.
New ordering kiosks are part of the interior, but they haven’t replaced the human touch – you can order at the counter if you prefer. If you’re dining in, your order will be brought to the table, joining other fast-food restaurants in that service-delivery mode.
Other visitors there for the grand opening included McDonald’s government-relations manager Ian Tolleson and regional brand-reputation manager Lindsay Kirsh-Rainey. Abboud also owns the Morgan Junction McDonald’s, which eventually will get an overhaul too; no specific timeline yet. (The White Center McDonald’s, which has different ownership, also recently got the high-tech revamp, but in that case, the entire restaurant was rebuilt from the ground up, not just remodeled.)
